Russian Defence Ministry: US biolabs studied the possibility of virus transfer by birds migrating to Russia; Study of bat coronavirus

As they say in Russia: “All that is hidden becomes unveiled”. I am presenting today several translations regarding the American biolabs in Ukraine, the existence of which was confirmed by Nuland, and the picture that starts forming around them.

Before I proceed with the translations, fist a link to an English-language article on RT, which contains some of the new information.

US-funded labs in Ukraine dealt with bat coronavirus, Moscow claims

Russia’s Ministry of Defense cited documents it claims it captured at the facilities, while the US denies developing bioweapons

Igor Konashenkov, spokesperson for Russia’s Ministry of Defense, said that “experiments with samples of bat coronavirus were being carried out in the bio-laboratories, created and funded [by the US] in Ukraine, as documents show.” The Russian official went on to claim that in 2022 the US was intending to “work on bird, bat and reptile pathogens,” with plans to move on to research into whether those animals can “transmit African swine fever virus and anthrax.”

According to Konashenkov, the scientists were looking into, among other things, the possibility of pathogen transmission by wild birds migrating between Russia, Ukraine and other neighboring countries.

The Russian Defense Ministry continues to recapture settlements from Ukrainian nationalists, and at the same time, specialized personnel of the department in the field of radiation, chemical and biological protection analyse documents given by employees of Ukrainian biological laboratories about secret military biological activities of the United States on the territory of Ukraine.

– Of particular interest was the detailed information about the implementation of a project by the United States on the territory of Ukraine to study the transfer of pathogens by wild birds migrating between Ukraine and Russia and other neighbouring countries. According to the documents, the American side planned to conduct work on pathogens of birds, bats and reptiles in Ukraine in 2022, with a further transition to studying the possibility of their transmission of African swine fever and anthrax. According to the documents, experiments with samples of bat coronavirus were conducted in biolabs created and funded in Ukraine,” said Igor Konashenkov, an official representative of the Russian Defence Ministry.

We are talking about the fact that many waterfowl migrate from Russia to the southern countries in autumn and back in spring, and can be made into carriers of bacteria and viruses to poison freshwater sources.

– The purpose of these and other Pentagon-funded biological research in Ukraine was to create a mechanism for the covert spread of deadly pathogens. In the near future, we will publish the next package of documents received from Ukrainian biolaboratory employees and present the results of their examination,” Konashenkov promised.

Back in the fall of 2017, Komsomolka (, translator note) came out with the material “Secret biolabs of the USA surround Russia”. The material was published after a notable speech in Ukraine by former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Oleynik, who said that a network of biolabs has been deployed near the borders of Russia, which belong to the US military and are funded by the Pentagon.

There were 15 of them in Ukraine at that time, not 30.

“Biolabs can pose a danger to both Russian and Ukrainian citizens,” Oleynik said at the time. – Evidence of the work of these laboratories are cases of animal and human diseases with exotic types of diseases for Ukraine. It is impossible to hide the epidemics of African plague, which regularly mows down the pig population, bird flu, which kills chickens and nullifies the supply of chicken for export. It is also difficult to hide cases when unknown viruses take the lives and health of citizens of Ukraine. As a rule, such local epidemics are not made public. Patients are trying to be treated behind closed doors of a special clinic.

The correspondent of KP then asked a number of questions to a former employee of the Federal Center for Hygiene and Epidemiology of Russia, zoologist Viktor Zhukov, who spent more than 50 years studying particularly dangerous infections – Crimean fever, tularemia, tick-borne encephalitis.

– After the Great Patriotic War, laboratories existed in our area of the Sea of Azov. They were led by the future chief sanitary doctor of the USSR, Pyotr Burgasov. The principle of their work was to search for vaccines and medicines for new types of viruses and dangerous infections. But recently the number of such laboratories has decreased…

Viktor Ivanovich told how the laboratory staff managed to avoid an international scandal: the Italians wanted to buy Russian hares in Stavropol in order to settle them on the island of Sardinia. The trade was stopped in time: the animals turned out to be sick with Congo-Crimean fever. This terrible disease is transmitted to people by ticks, eared hedgehogs, bats and mosquitoes.

– While earlier this disease used to occur in the Astrakhan and Rostov regions, now it comes up in Kalmykia, Volgograd region, Krasnodar and Stavropol territories, Crimea. BEfore, in the USSR, only people who were engaged in agriculture were infected with it, and now even vacationers can contract it. I believe that this geography is connected with the transfer of the virus by migratory birds. In particular, rooks,” Zhukov said at the time.

The scientist also explained the mechanism of disease transmission: “You know, rooks settle on pyramidal poplars, which were usually planted during the USSR at hospitals and schools. I had to kill one rook that was sitting by a tree with its beak wide open. He was barely alive. Combing the carcass, I removed about 1000 ticks of various ages from it! In Astrakhan, I caught a hedgehog, which had the same number of infected insects. After drinking blood, they disappear, but their offspring transmit viruses to dogs, cats, livestock, which infect people.”

Zhukov was very worried about the appearance of West Nile fever in Russia, and he also reminded me of a biology lesson about migratory birds.

– Many of our birds – ducks, geese and cranes – migrate to Europe through Ukraine. But rooks winter in Ukraine, where the climate is milder,” the zoologist noted.

It turns out that no drones are needed. It is enough to spread infected insects in places where migratory birds feed in Ukraine… published today, the 10th of March, the following article:

Ministry of Defence: more than 140 containers with ectoparasites of bats were transferred abroad from Kharkiv
March 10, 2022, 17:17

The materials placed at the disposal of the Russian military confirm the transfer abroad of more than 140 containers with ectoparasites of bats from the biological laboratory in Kharkov.

This was told by the head of the radiation, chemical and biological (RCB) protection troops of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation Igor Kirillov. “The analysis of the obtained materials confirms the fact of the transfer of more than 140 containers with ectoparasites of bats — fleas and ticks from the biolab in Kharkov abroad,” Kirillov is quoted by TASS.

The Defence Ministry said earlier that it had received data on a US project in laboratories in Ukraine to study the spread of dangerous infections by migratory birds. It is reported that the discovered documents confirm numerous cases of transfer of biological samples of Ukrainian citizens abroad. According to the ministry, one of the documents confirms that dangerous research in biological laboratories was conducted under the guidance of American specialists.

The military department said that the materials received contain proposals to expand the US military biological program on the territory of Ukraine. The Ministry of Defence noted that the project on the transfer of dangerous diseases by birds is extremely reckless and does not allow to control the further development of the situation.

It is reported that the US P-781 project, which was developed on the territory of Ukraine, studied bats as bioweapons. The Ministry explained that one of the tasks of the United States and its allies is to create bioagents capable of selectively hitting various ethnic groups, in particular, Slavs.

Earlier, the “Expert” wrote that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a press conference following talks with his Ukrainian counterpart Dmitry Kuleba commented on the reaction of the West to data on the Pentagon’s military biolabs in Ukraine. “The fact that Washington’s representatives have publicly denied rumours, as they say, that they are engaged in some kind of prohibited activity is not surprising,” the Russian Foreign Minister said. Also, according to him, it is not a surprise that the European Union “immediately began to say with one voice that the EU has no data that Americans are engaged in military biological activities in Ukraine.” Lavrov drew attention to the fact that the United States is creating its laboratories right on the perimeter of Russia and China.

The developer of the “Novichok”, Rink: the USA is looking for poisons and viruses to combat Slavic genotypes
10.03.2022 00:55

Biological laboratories located in Ukraine had valuable collections of pathogens of dangerous diseases and viruses, recalled Leonid Rink, one of the creators of the Novichok combat poisoning system.

Previously, Soviet anti-plague stations were located on the site of Ukrainian laboratories. They were highly organized biological objects to counteract the epidemic, Rink noted.

“It was necessary to destroy all this without warning already back then, but the Americans smartly stole biological samples,” Vzglyad quotes him.

Rink recalled that the United States had been searching for new poisons and viruses for a long time, which would mainly infect representatives of the Slavic genotype. We are talking about Russians, Belarusians and Ukrainians. At first, the Americans were engaged in similar research on their territory, but after a number of accidents they were transferred to rented laboratories in China, Switzerland and other countries.

“In this case, the Ukrainian anti-plague stations differ from these laboratories, since they are centres for preparing for biological warfare. This is the most effective war of the future,” Rink concluded.

On February 24, Russia launched a military special operation to demilitarize Ukraine. A few days ago, the Ministry of Defense announced the receipt of documents confirming the development of biological weapons components on Ukrainian territory. Now the United States is doing everything possible to prevent the materials of the research of these laboratories from reaching the Russian forces, RT reports.
